Which Church Accounting Software Is Best?

(Delmar, MD)

Question regarding church accounting software:

I am the pastor of a 3 months old church. We have about 15 members and I am currently the one doing the books.

I have no prior accounting experience. When we started we started out with 7 people and now were up to 15 and I can see us growing even more.

I am looking for software that can grow with us, user friendly, that even a person like me with no accounting experience can use until the Lord brings us a person who knows how to do it.

We're looking for something that is not expensive. If you can help that would be great.


My church started out with 7 members too. We are now over 100. Growing a church from the ground up is both hard work and very rewarding.

As I stated on my church accounting software page, I have not personally used any church accounting software beside my spreadsheets. So hopefully some financial administrators from churches your size will take a moment to submit a comment (click the link below)and share what they use and like.

With the size of your church right now, you may want to use a simple spreadsheet until you find the software you are happy with.

Whatever you choose, I would make sure it has a good guarantee and support system (that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg).
